These price hikes of CNG come at a time when petrol and diesel prices have reached a new high. With the rapidly surging price of petrol and diesel, demands for CNG and other alternative cheaper fuel solutions have been increasing across the country. In such a scenario, relentless price hikes of CNG would impact the demand and sales of CNG as well, just like it did for petrol and diesel.
Meanwhile, prices of petrol and diesel remained steady for the eighth day in a row on April 14. Since March 22, rates of both petrol and diesel have increased by ₹10 per litre via 14 revisions, taking the price of the motor fuels to new highs.
